In a completely unsurprising development, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was seen on the sidelines pacing and yelling during the second half of the team’s 41-28 victory over the Bears on Thursday night.

Bryant does this all the time, and some are quick to point to such outbursts when making the case that the star receiver is a distraction. But Bryant’s teammates don’t seem to see it that way, and neither does Bryant. He views his emotion on the sidelines as motivational for the team and, frankly, he doesn’t care how it might look to outsiders.

“[Expletive] no, I do not care,” Bryant said after the win, per the Dallas Morning News. “Because I know I’m not doing anything wrong. They don’t know what’s going on. I can’t care less. They ain’t on no sidelines. Nobody’s on the sidelines with us.

“The only thing they’re waiting for us to do is take an L so they can talk a bunch of [expletive] about us. ‘Oh, the same old Cowboys in December.’ C’mon, man. Ain’t none of that. We’re going to take advantage of what we need to take advantage of.

“I don’t give a [expletive] who films it. That’s the truth. That’s the truth. That’s how I feel. As long as we get the W, that’s the only thing that matters. Put that [expletive] down. … Put my whole cuss words in there. I meant that. We’re trying to do something big here. That’s the only thing that matters.”
